    Mad About Mambo's steps may be as familiar as the hokeypokey, but there's just enough gusto in the execution to make it a guilty pleasure.

    This genial little picture, which has been kicking around for more than a year, doesn't have a mean bone in its body.
  3. Splashy and sweetly romantic, if hopelessly unimaginative.

    Everything about the movie is fine and dandy and dull.

    Lacking the kind of fire and energy that the best youth movies demand, leads Ash and Russell display skills better tuned to the small screen.
